I watch you leave out the door,
I know I can’t blame you for your parent’s choice,
I know you don’t know why your parents chose to go now,
Out of all these years,
Why now.

You were one of my only friends,
But yet you don’t say bye,
I know I won’t see you again unless by luck,
But you don’t believe in luck.

Your gone,
Gone for good.

I wrote this July 5, 2014, because I was on my way to Washington to see fireworks and I say one of my best friends. He moved away in November of 2013, and the 4th was the first an only time I have seen him since, and now I know I won't see him again.

So relatable, this 4th of July I saw two friends that I haven't seen in years because they moved. The two hugged and hanged out the entire day and never once noticed me. Maybe they just didn't see me, or bothered to care to. Your poems note is similar to mine, other than the fact those old friends might not be friends anymore!
